Very nice pics and Blog. :)
I noticed that the caretaker of the bonsai was clothed from head to toe. Was the weather hot or cold? Were there alot of bees? I am amazed how many bonsai there were... wow.
The weather was very pleasant, I am unsure of the clothing. These plants would be taken to an auction house to be sold to retailers or landscapers. Later I will post pictures of the auction center.
I've never seen so many pyracantha in one place before. Obviously Fire Blight is not a problem in Japan.
